Prison Guards Say Saeed Abedini Won’t Go Free Until He Denies Christ

Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”

The wife of wrongly imprisoned pastor Saeed Abedini says the guards at the prison where he’s being held tell him that unless he renounces Christ, he will never be released.

“Last week had been quite difficult for Saeed. He has been under a lot of pressure and attack from the hardliners. The guards have also been threatening Saeed that he will never go free and additional charges (and years) will be added to his sentence (which they have done to other Christians and fellow inmates),” said the pastor’s wife, Naghmeh Abedini, according to American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).

“They continually threaten Saeed that the only key to his freedom is denying Christ and returning to Islam. Saeed refuses to deny Christ and continues to be a light and witness in that dark prison. These threats, coupled with the fact that there have been mass executions during the last week in Rajayee Shahr prison, have really taken their toll on Saeed. He asks for prayer for continued strength,” she said.

Saeed has been imprisoned for more than two and a half years for his Christian faith.

The ACLJ is calling on U.S. officials to raise the situation with Abedini when they return to the negotiating table with Iran on April 21st.

“Our government must do everything in its power to bring pastor Saeed home. It is absolutely critical that the Obama administration and the State Department continue to demand that our innocent citizens — especially pastor Saeed who is suffering only because of his religious beliefs — be returned home,” said the organization. “He suffers from injuries. He is separated from his family. He is persecuted for his faith. He is surrounded by fellow inmates being dragged to the gallows. The thought is unbearable.”

  1. , Even as Paul & Silas were delivered from Prison in Acts, I ask You, Jesus, to send your MIGHTY, WARRIOR ANGELS TO LOOSE THIS PRECIOUS PASTOR FROM THAT PRISON AND BRING HIM HOME. YOU ARE THE LORD OF ALL, AND YOU WILL DO THIS. THANK YOU, JESUS. BRING HIM HOME, OUT OF HARM’S WAY AND AWAY FROM THESE REPROBATE, SATANISTIC, EVIL MEN! AMEN & AMEN. THANK YOU, JESUS!

  2. I believe Saeed is a witness to us all, that we must stand for Jesus and not waiver. I pray that when our prayers go up on his behalf that God would release angels about him continually ministering to him and that what he is going through would honor God, and be a witness to all the nations, in glorifying God. Would each of us be able to withstand such hatred and torture. We might have to answer that question sooner than later, and I pray we will all answer right! To God be the Glory.

  3. I pray he never denies Christ but that God gives him grace and stops the beatings. That one day he will be back home where he belongs.

  4. Praying for this brother. We must continue to pray for our brothers and sisters
    In Christ. Unfortunately the U.S.government is making dangerous deals…as
    We speak with Iran. Persecution is coming …..We must be in the Secret Place
    And dwell. And as the word says …..You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 2Timothy 2:3

  5. “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying. They were also singing hymns to God… Suddenly there was a powerful earthquake. It shook the prison from top to bottom. All at once the prison doors flew open. Everybody’s chains came loose.” – Acts 16:25-26 The guard and his household can be saved and our Saeed Abedini can be set free. GOD can send an earthquake or whatever way to deliver
    to set this prisoner free in Jesus Name. Nancy from Plant City Fl

  6. We as Christians must continue to lift up Pastor Abedini and his family in prayer for him to be released from Iran and free to come home and to his family. Pray that our president will see to it that Pastor Abedini is set free.

  7. I pray Pastor Saeed will never deny Christ. But my heart goes out to him. Surrounded by demons in human bodies telling him lies. God and God alone will determine when he is freed. And I believe with all the faith I have, soon God will release him from that horrible prison and bring him home.

  8. What shall it be to gain the whole world and deny our Savior? Keep on keeping on my dear friend in
    Christ. Jesus gave His all…all to Him we owe. Your life and mine is but a vapor which today is and
    tomorrow is faded way. May He continue to give you His strength as you stay in prison. I know you are
    a man of God who understands and is a great LIGHT in a dark place. In due season you shall reap, if
    you faint not. My heartfelt prayers are with you.

  9. Oh precious bothers and sisters, we have been interceding for Pastor Saeed Abedini and now we must do more, pray more, intercede more! The words of these enemies must not be the final prophecy said over him. He will be miraculously released and returned to his family soon and despite what any administration does or does not do! In Jesus name, he will be freed and to God be the glory!
